Delivery times for delivery of a large number of items in the Australian city of Sydney can be significantly longer than expected, with delivery drivers often operating at night.
The average delivery time for a single package in Sydney is 5.5 minutes and is significantly longer in some areas than others, according to new research by travel agency H&M.
The research, which used online data to identify the most efficient route from a hub to a destination, found that a route between the city centre and the CBD, where the majority of people live, was significantly more expensive than a similar route between Melbourne and Sydney.
For example, the average route between Sydney and the city’s outer suburbs was 15 minutes and the average one between the CBD and the outer suburbs took an average of 12 minutes, compared to the average of 6.5-7 minutes in Melbourne.
The study found that the average time for an express delivery was 15.7 minutes and for an arabia delivery was 12.5.
The research also found that drivers operating at evening peak times, when people tend to be more alert, were significantly more likely to make an incorrect choice on the spot.
The H&am’s travel agency has been working with the Government on its “Smart Delivery” initiative, which aims to reduce the number of accidents involving people travelling in congested areas.
“Our research has identified drivers who are at fault in over 30 per cent of the fatal accidents,” said H&ams managing director David Mok.
It has also been revealed that drivers are not always aware of the need to be alert.
In one study conducted for H&s, drivers were asked to provide the time the delivery would take in an hour.
The average delivery would be 10.4 minutes.
But the study found drivers were more likely than others to make the wrong choice in the event of a breakdown.
One study of H&ames own fleet showed that drivers were at fault for only 17 per cent or only 14 per cent in fatal accidents, compared with 45 per cent for other fleet members.
